In My Mind
A story about the different “voices” in my head that echo the thoughts my mind goes through when making a decision,
Decision making is considered emotional and happens in the mind--- so it only makes sense that every “voice” in my head that I’m about to introduce, represents one of the basic emotions I deal with on a daily basis.
*Joy Jolly - She is an angelic voice I rarely get to hear because I tend to put others’ happiness before mine. She speaks on revelations full of happiness and utter bliss. I can count on her to rejoice in whatever I decide. Nothing anyone says can sway her delight in the choices I make for my life. She is the most supportive voice as long as I am happy.
*Fan E. Fear - (The E that is her middle name is known to stand for Evoke.) She is the loudest and persistent voice. I consider her talks about a form of torture that never ends. She doesn’t have the ability to shut up, especially when I need to make an important decision, (that could mean life or death). The other voices hush into silence when she speaks, her voice thunders out an authoritative that should not be deceived. Her name is a mirror on how she is able to use her words to spark my fears and spread them beyond my control. Similar to a fan exciting a flame that grows into a fire you can’t contain. It is no shock that she’s married to My Anxiety, the burns they create with their words hurt deep. I can’t look at the wounds, therefore, I am unable to soothe the pain
*Miss Selene Sadness - She speaks in a whisper that I try to ignore. It’s ironic that a barely audible tone would be the one that catches my attention the most. The memories that haunt me and bring me down are the only ones she tends to comment on. Her voice keeps me company when the moon wakes me and my thoughts refuse to escape me.
*Disgusted Desiree - She likes to babble about her disapproval of the paths my life seems to be traveling on. The sinful desires in my heart and mind gives her voice a megaphone, I fear will travel out my own mouth in sound.
Mrs. Serenity Surprise - She keeps me on my toes always using her voice to astonish me. She tends to remind me of a coin toss, it’s always going to be heads or tails when she speaks. Half the time she reasons with the other voices opinions and half the time she bravely states the opinion no one else wants to admit out loud. I would say she is probably my favorite voice because the choices she offers continuously amaze me.
A. Nger - She is the most complicated voice in my head. She has a short attention span and her chatter is often overlapped by all the other voices. She is quick to speak but even quicker in changing her lines. I can’t listen to her voice too much because she contradicts her position on my mind every time she speaks.
Mr. Ez Excite-Ment - (The only voice in my head that represents masculinity.) He speaks with an eager, in-it-to-win-it, tone. The enthusiasm he manifests in every speech is a passionate way that earns my devout attention. He enjoys the thrill and adventure of life, as much as I do. The yang to my yin, (Mrs. Serenity Surprise), an energy so strong, begins to trust my mind.
Ms. Rose Shame - She speaks the least out of all the voices, I’m not sure why. Truth be told her speeches tend to be shallow in terms of importance. It is my honest belief that it is near impossible to be humiliated by your own foolish behavior. I should mind her words, a little more closely, in the near future so I may avoid any unnecessary distress.
Guilt E. Girl - She loves to talk about decisions that weigh on my conscious mind. Her theories are almost always right. She nags me every day about a million things I could do, with my thoughts, to better my life. She is a constant reminder of some choices I need to make right.
Witch of Contempt - She dislikes everything in my inner mind; the other voices, my life choices, basically everything that makes me, me. When she speaks, her words cast powerful spells, that name me worthless to my mind. She’s also a good listener; very patient as she listens to all the secrets I keep in mind. I can’t hate her though, her voice calls out to the deepest and darkest thoughts I have buried deep inside, she has a strong sense of disregard in the annoying way she talks in phrases.
Since the voices in my head seem to be here to stay,
